Beautiful You in Watercolors

Beautiful You in Watercolors, by Krista Thomas,

I had so much fun making this card!  I started with a piece of watercolor paper and some Stampin’ Up watercolor pencils.  I chose four colors, Bermuda Bay, Old Olive, Pacific Point and Daffodil Delight, scribbling them lightly over the watercolor paper in a diagonal direction.  Then I took my aqua painter and went over the panel in the same diagonal direction as before, blending the colors beautifully.

I used my heat tool to quickly dry the panel and then stamped the lady from Beautiful You with Black Staz On ink.  Her dress & hat were then colored in with the Pacific Point watercolor pencil and then blended with the aqua painter.

I am thrilled with the quality of Stampin’ Up’s watercolor pencils and have enjoyed the results that I’ve gotten with them.  If you haven’t experienced them yet, you’re missing out on a great product.  And if you’d like to give them a try, just click on the product picture below and order some for yourself!  You deserve a set!!

The little black curly-cues were cut with a die from  Cheerful Tags and I thought they worked well as accents above and below the label shaped window.
